so last week,8 days ago, i realized i had missed 2 pills because there was some blood down there so that night at 9:00 (my normal time to take them) i took the 2 i missed along with that night's pill. i continued my period and 8 days later i still have my period and i'm wondering why i have my period still?? when will this period stop? or should i stop this pack, would that make my period stop? and one last question, will i get my period again after this pack is finished ?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

These questions will be best answered by your gynecologist.
You acted correctly by making up for the missed doses. I cannot offer a reason why you are still bleeding.

Keep us updated,
